Charming Lake Iseo is located in the Franciacorta Valley, one of the best wine growing areas in the north of Italy and is the ideal base for exploring the neighbouring lakes of Garda and Como.
Day 1 – Our flight departs from the UK. Upon arrival we will be met and transferred to Iseo Lago, where we check in to the Hotel.
Day 2 – Today, we travel to Lake Garda and visit the town of Salò, the renowned port and entrance to the Riviera dei Limoni. Salò was the seat of the Fascist government during the Second World War and consequently home to the infamous dictator, Mussolini, during this time. Traces of its prestigious past can be seen along the main street in the elegant historic centre lined with beautiful, historical buildings, pretty boutiques and restaurants. In the afternoon we enjoy wine tasting at Cantine Redaelli de Zinis, a stunning winery to the south west of the Lake.
Day 3 – Our destination today is a third lake, Lake Como. As we travel up to the south east corner we will be in awe of the dramatic scenery. Our first stop will be at the pretty village of Varenna where we can admire the spectacular views for which Como is famous. From Varenna we then take a short ferry trip (15 minutes) over to stunning Bellagio, the ‘jewel’ of Lake Como. This lovely historic village is teeming with character and boasts a fine selection of lakeside cafés, offering fabulous views from all angles.
Day 4 – Today we enjoy a day at leisure at Lake Iseo. Hop on the bus into the town or merely relax at the hotel.
Day 5 – Today we visit a nearby wine cellar ‘cantina’ in the renowned wine producing area of Franciacorta. This region is very well known throughout Italy, especially for its production of top quality sparkling white wine, or spumante as it is known in the ‘bel paese’. We spend the afternoon at leisure in Iseo.
Day 6 – Having experienced some of the best that Italy has to offer, we sadly head for the airport for our flight back to the UK.
